What to do in Amsterdam this Fall?

The season for long strolls, cuddling and hot cinnamon tea is here. Fall is, of course, the perfect time of year to cuddle up on the couch, binge-watching your fave series (these are ours!) but when the sun comes out and temperatures are actually kind of nice, it’s up to you to make the most out of your weekends. Here’s what’s cooking in Amsterdam the coming weeks, enjoy!

The Sixties exhibition at Tropenmuseum
When? from October 16th 2015 to March 13th 2016 Entrance fee: 8 euros
It’s a fact we build on the icons of yesterday. In the 1960s era, when globalization as we know it first appeared, thousands of youngsters traveled to the hippie capitals of the world – Amsterdam being on of them. This exhibition zooms in on fashion, design and living in the sixties. So much inspiration!
